Description:

Authors examined fluctuating asymmetry of 25 characters of skull morphology (foramina, apertures through the bone for nerves and small blood vessels) to estimate the developmental stability of European bison Bison bonasus (Linnaeus, 1758) (n=34), the cattle (n=13) and their hybrids (54 hybrids of different generations). Mean number of asymmetrical characters per individual was used as a measure of fluctuating asymmetry.
